Lindsay Lohan

PANICS

Flies First Class to L.A.

EXCLUSIVE

Lindsay Lohan and her mom Dina took the last flight out of JFK last night and jetted to L.A. after being warned she'd be a wanted woman if she was a no-show in court this morning.

Lindsay -- who is not just broke but deeply in debt -- waited in her car at the airport (above) until the last minute ... then flew first class on American Airlines and landed at around 12:30 AM.

TMZ broke the story ... Lindsay had no intention of showing up in her lying-to-cops case and got a doctor's note which was filed with the court, saying she couldn't fly because she had an upper respiratory infection. But then we posted pictures of Lindsay shopping and smoking in SoHo the very day she got the doctor's note.

We're told Lindsay went into a panic after we posted our story Tuesday and started calling everyone to find out if we were right ... that the judge would probably issue a warrant for her arrest if she didn't show. Our Lindsay sources say she was pleading with Shawn Holley -- the lawyer she fired -- to come back on the case, saying she didn't like her replacement -- New York lawyer Mark Heller.

Holley made it clear days ago ... she's off the case, so it's now up to Heller, who clearly started off on the wrong foot by submitting the doctor's note, along with a New York Post article saying a lot of people in NYC had the flu.

Heller has another problem -- the lawyer he got to sponsor him to appear in a California court has never met him, and it's possible the judge could deny him the right to represent Lindsay. 

So Lindsay could be lawyerless ... and you know what they say about a client who reps herself ...

We'll be livestreaming the action in court beginning at 8:30 AM.

To any legal types on here: Can she be sent to jail today? I thought this was a pretrial hearing, which sounds to me like she won't be sentenced to anything until after the actual trial.

It would be hilarious if LL really did decide to fly to LA and didn't tell Heller..That would make a great impression on the judge.

You gotta give them credit, broke, in debt,legal problems and IRS and they fly first class at the last minute. They don't know how to save money or else they don't care. That's why they are never gonna get out of debt. Just b/c you're an actor is no reason to throw money around. I think that is old Hollywood mentality. A new breed is coming up and it's not about wasting time and money on cocaine and champagne. Don't get me wrong, if you win a lot of awards like all these new actresses you have to celebrate. You deserve some fun when you work hard. She has developed a Rep for being lazy and reneging on contracts. That is her professional suicide!

with the question of who is Lindsays lawyer on the table, the judge will postpone the hearing yet again and Lindsay will skip out the door yet again. Right Harvey?

She was SMOKING too? She really wasn't taking this "annoying court thing" seriously, was she? Most people would have enough sense to stay home if they "called in fake sick".

Oh FFS TMZ, Lindsay doesn't panic! She always waits till the last minute, catches a red eye flight, buys the ticket at the counter, flies first class, and it costs a fortune. Standard operating procedure!

Not convinced she was ever goin' to be a no-show. That was all just Heller theatrics! Drum up a bunch of hype that she is too sick and will be a no-show, then miracle of miracles against all odds overcome the obstacles presented to her and appear anyway, thus showing how seriously she takes this matter and how responsible she is being about it! LMAO

Sautner will buy it too!

Here's how it will go down...Lindz will appear with her "sponsor" lady and they'll ask for a continuance and we'll go through all this BS next month. It's called The Perp Walk. The revolving door, Free pass, etc..

I don't think Lindsay went into panic mode. I think she went into adult mode. When you are supposed to be in court...you show up.
